Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967482909, Hardcover)

A brief history of The Salvation Army Waioli Tea Room in Honolulu Hawaii. Built in 1922, the Tea Room served as an adjunct vocational training center for young women in residence at the adjoining Children's Home which was established by The Salvation Army in 1909. The book follows the historical chronology, its population of boys and girls who were "given" to the Salvation Army for custody when parents could not care for them or they were abandoned. For many, it was the only "home" they knew throughout their childhoood. Personal stories are included, details of the home and tea room development, financial struggles, and reclaimation maintaining its place in a very supportive community. Salvation Army officer names are used throughout.
